Roddy Mccorley

Pogues

 C
 When he stepped up the narrow street
 FC
 Smiling and proud and young
 CFC
 Around the hemp around his neck
 CFG
 The golden ringlets clung
 CFC
There was never a tear in his blue eyes
 CFG
 Both sad and bright were they
 C
 And young Roddy MacCorley goes to die
 FC
On the Bridge of Toome today

When he last stepped up that street
His shining steel in hand
Behind him marched in grim array
A stalwart earnest band
For Antrim town! for Antrim town!
He led them to the fray
Now young Roddy MacCorley goes to die
On the Bridge of Toome today

See the hosts of fleetfoot men
Who speed with faces wan
From farmstead house and from fisher?s cot
Upon the banks of the Bann
They come with vengeance in their eyes
Too late, too late are they
For young Roddy MacCorley goes to die
On the Bridge of Toome today
